Colombia star Rodriguez swept home a confident penalty to take his tally to six for the World Cup, although he was ultimately unable to prevent his side losing 2-1 to hosts Brazil.

Neymar was unable to add to the four goals he has so far in the tournament, meaning Lionel Messi has the chance to move into second place at least in the standings when his Argentina side face Belgium – though he is now two behind leader James.

Thomas Muller, who is also level with Messi on four, drew a blank against France as Germany recorded a 1-0 win which also saw Karim Benzema fail to add to the three goals he managed during the group stage.
